The Goat and the Goatherd

The goat flew to the top of the tallest tree and perched there.

“Here now, come down this instant! You can’t fly!” shouted the goatherd, flinging his hat to the ground.

“I can’t?” said the goat.

“Of course not. You have no wings!” screamed the goatherd, dancing about in a frenzy.

“I don’t?” said the goat.

“And you can’t talk either!” shrieked the goatherd, tearing at his hair.

“Wow, looks like I’m a big fat 0 for 3 then, don’t it?” said the goat. “Thanks for the heads up.”

So saying, the goat sailed off into the sky, leaving behind one seriously agitated goatherd.

Moral: Before you count your chickens, make sure they aren’t flying goats.
